Steve Nicholls ALIEN WORLDS

Apollo/Head of Zeus publish PLANET INSECT: How Insects Conquered the Earth by Steve Nicholls in paperback on 4 July (previously published in hardback as  ALIEN WORLDS).  This is a comprehensive and beautifully illustrated natural history of insects.

“‘The simple fact,” Nicholls writes, ‘is that we need insects far more than they need us.’  Pollinators, predators, ecosystem engineers: insects of all kinds help shape and sustain the living world on which we all depend, whether we realise it or not … and this alien world is under terrible strain…  (This) book is an entrancing, moving exploration of the innumerable little lives flickering about us, of how they came to be here and how they may soon be lost forever.” Richard Smyth, New Scientist
